1. If you could own any animal what would it be?
I’d love to have a horse! I ride horses on occasion but every day would be ideal ❤️
2. Who is your favorite super hero and why?
The fallen soldier. Much respect to them for paying the ultimate sacrifice for this country.
3. What is one of your weird quirks?
I tend to break into song, if I hear a response from a teacher, which resembles a song lyric. Luckily, I am part of an academic arts program, so this isn’t completely unusual for my peers.
4. If you could trade lives with someone for one day who would it be and why?
Shawn Mendes for sure! He is living my dream, singing and playing guitar and traveling the world, playing for packed arenas!! I have my ticket for his concert in July!! I just love his music and style and congrats to him on working hard and making his dreams come true!
5. What is your biggest addiction?
When I want to treat me, i love dark sea salt chocolate. Yummy!! And I always love my hot tea with raw sugar.
6. Take us through the moment you fell in love with music?
In 1st grade, my choir teacher had us learn a song and sing it. That became my moment of finding something I love to do.
7. Which artists inspire you the most?
There are so many, but if I go back to the original inspiration, it would be Taylor Swift. She found her way teaching herself the guitar and writing her own songs. And I love that she wrote about things that were her life experiences and that I could relate to. She continues to be an amazing song writer and if you go to her concerts, it’s so worth it! She is a performer not just a singer!! Love her!!
8. Do you ever get stage fright? If so, how do you overcome it?
I literally never get stage fright! I want to be on a stage all the time. I do get anxious to be on stage, though. I’d say if you have stage fright, just remind yourself that you are about to do what you love for people who love what you do. It’s a win win so don’t get in your head about it.
9. What has been your favorite performance to date?
I was cast in a theater production of Annie, last year over the holidays. It was so fulfilling because I was able to not only sing but also dance and act! I met so many amazing friends and we became such a family. The show ran for 21 shows and it was such an amazing time for me!
10. How do you plan on growing your singing career in 2019?
I am focusing on song writing and am teaching myself the piano and continuing to grow with my guitar playing skills.
11. Do you ever write your own music and lyrics?
I do! I have written two songs so far and am working on more. I start with the lyrics and then I add melody with my guitar.
12. Describe the feeling you get when you’re performing.
It’s like nothing else!! I feel complete and really get lost in the moment! I could perform every day and never get tired or bored of it.
13. What do you like most about the Girl2Girl App?
I’ve learned that support is super important and I love how on the girl2girl app you can support one another and connect in a safe environment.
